Buying Advice:

While you may simply buy an off the shelf rotisserie kit, these rotisserie kits are made directly in our shop and cut from heavy duty stainless and carbon steel.  We made these to address several issues with supply problems with off the shelf rotisserie kits (poor materials and poor bearings supplied with the kits) and also reducing some of the labor during assembly.  Due to the grade of materials in this kit, the cost is a bit higher than that of products off of the shelf, but these should provide greater strength and longevity than off the shelf rotisseries.  

Note that this basic kit only contains 1 bearing/bracket and is suitable for the 2/4/6/8 LB Drums and possibly the 12LB kit, but it is not recommended for the 12LB kit as a second bracket is recommended for the 12LB drum due to added weight and friction.  For 12LB drums, please see the Heavy Duty Rotisserie Kit Deluxe.

These are sold only in the “Everything Kits”, or individually here.  The free standing assembled images illustrates the ideal configuration for all RK Setups, but note that the kit does not contain a motor.  We recommend the RK Motors to turn this rotisserie.  If using a standard rotisserie motor, sourcing an older one that turns at least 6RPM is required for even roasting and do please note that it only has enough torque to turn the 4LB drum.  Lately it seems that off the shelf rotisserie motors have been limited to 1.5RPM and will not produce even results in your coffee.   For best results, purchase the RK Motor to turn your drum.  Additionally be aware that any rotisserie kit you choose must be 5/16″ square and not any other diameter or configuration (i.e. hexagonal or split-rod).  This is guaranteed to fit your RK Roaster.

If you have, or will purchase an extra wide grill, where the firebox is wider than 30″, please be sure to choose the 50 inch rod option above when purchasing.
